DUMBO - Some new signs posted along several streets in DUMBO have heads turning and residents talking today.

At first glance the signs look like ordinary parking signs, but after a second look residents say they're actually etiquette signs with messages for the public.  Some of the signs instruct those with sagging pants to pull them up, while others read "Don't flick your butts on the ground," "Pay attention while walking," and "Clean up after your horse."

The signs were posted by artist Jason Shelowitz, and he was also behind signs that were posted in subways, instructing straphangers on proper etiquette while riding on the train.

Sherlowitz says he has 80 signs in total so residents may be able to find a few on Atlantic Avenue and Flatbush Avenue sometime over the next few weeks.
